What is a Six Sigma Green Belt? 
Six Sigma Green Belts fulfil the roles of Process Improvement or Quality Improvement team members on full time Black Belt projects.  A Green Belt team member can come from any level within an organisation and provide subject matter expertise for a project.  They may be considered as leaders on certain projects that don’t require the Black Belt level of analytical rigour.  Six Sigma Green Belts are groomed in the Six Sigma DMAIC methodology which helps them to cascade Six Sigma tools and techniques throughout an organisation.   Green Belt competence prepares individuals within an organisation to use simple Six Sigma tools and techniques to define, measure, analyse, improve and control processes.
